Project 2, Research Logbook

During class today, we discussed Project 2, which is described in detail in the menu above. Also, we began using the Library’s databases and catalog to find sources for this research-based project. To organize your research, create a new Google Doc and title it “Research Logbook.” For each potential source, copy-and-paste the bibliographic information from the source. Then, type this information into APA format for the reference list. Next, copy-and-paste any quotes into your logbook beneath the reference that you just wrote. Put the quoted material in-between quotation marks and add a parenthetical citation following APA format–don’t forget the page number!). If you need help finding books or articles, don’t hesitate to ask a librarian for help–they are happy to give assistance with your work on a project like this!

    “Social regulation is ubiquitous in the US healthcare system, and American healthcare organizations claim to be among the most regulated institutions in the world. Yet relatively little is known about the impact of social regulation on these organizations’ performance, or about the characteristics or determinants of effective regulatory strategies and approaches”(Walshe, K., & Shortell, S. M. 2004, p.79).

    “Hospitals is obligated to comply with the requirements if an individual seeking care is a member of a managed health care plan, and mentions that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issues the rules regarding the services” (Moffat, J. C. 2016 p.10).

    “the Affordable Care Act’s ‘‘employer shared responsibility’’ mandate, employers

    “Health plans will face penalties for publishing inaccurate provider directories: Medicare Advantage plans will have to pay $25,000 per day per member, while federal exchange plans must pay $100 per day per member” (Modern Healthcare, 2016 p.12).

    “We present a hybrid system spanning a fixed-function microarchitecture and a general-purpose microprocessor,designed to amplify the throughput and decrease the power dissipation of collision detection relative to what can be achieved using CPUs or GPUs alon” (Woulfe, M. Manzke, M.,2016 ,P.1).
    “Collision detection is found in computer games, animation, robotics and computer-aided design (CAD).An improvement in collision detection will benefit myriad applications.”(Woulfe, M. Manzke, M.,2016 ,P.1).
    “Algorithms can be executed on fixed-function microarchitectures on platforms such as application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs)or on general-purpose microprocessors such as CPUs and GPUs. Microarchitectures sacrifice programmability to dissipate less power and exhibit superior throughput. These advantages result from providing the designer with complete control over component layout and from eliminating the overhead of executing instructions”(Woulfe, M. Manzke, M.,2016 ,P.1).

    “In November 1971, Intel introduced the world’s first single-chip microprocessor, the Intel 4004. It had 2,300 transistors, ran at a clock speed of up to 740 KHz, and delivered 60,000 instructions per second while dissipating 0.5 watts” (Danowitz, A., et al., 2012, p1).
    “Today’s microprocessor chips employ billions of transistors, include multiple processor cores on a single silicon die, run at clock speeds measured in gigahertz, and deliver more than 4 million times the performance of the original 4004” (Danowitz, A., et al., 2012, p1).
    “ This article sheds some light on this question by introducing CPU DB (, an open and extensible database collected by Stanford’s VLSI (very large-scale integration) Research Group over several generations of processors (and students). We gathered information on commercial processors from 17 manufacturers and placed it in CPU DB, which now contains data on 790 processors spanning the past 40 years”(Danowitz, A., et al., 2012, p1).
    “CPU DB allows side-by-side access to performance data for relatively simple in-order processors (up to the mid-1990s) and modern out-of-order processors. One could ask if, at the cost of lower performance, the simplicity of the older designs conferred an efficiency advantage. Unfortunately, direct comparisons using the raw data are difficult because, over the years, manufacturing technologies have improved significantly”(Danowitz, A., et al., 2012, p3)

    Conserve Energy Future. (Jan. 2013)”Advantages of Solar Energy – Conserve Energy Future.” (N.p.) from

    “Solar energy i.e. energy from the sun provide consistent and steady source of solar power throughout the year. As our non-renewable resources are set to decline in the years to come, it is important for us to move towards renewable sources of energy like wind, hydropower, biomass and tidal. The main benefit of solar energy is that it can be easily deployed by both home and business users as it does not require any huge set up like in case of wind or geothermal power. Solar energy not only benefits individual owners, but also benefit environment as well” (FF COnserve Energy Future, Pa. 1).

    Masson, V., Bonhomme, M…(2014, June 4)”Solar Panels Reduce Both Global Warming and Urban Heat Island.” Frontiers. from

    “Sims et al. (2003) show that most renewable energies can, in certain circumstances, reduce cost as well as CO2 emissions, except for solar power, which remains expensive. However, Hernandez et al. (2014) review the environmental impacts of utility-scale solar energy installations (solar farms), which are typically implemented in rural areas, and show that they have low environmental impacts relative to other energy systems, including other renewables” (Bonhomme, June 4, 2014, Pa.2 ).

    Alternative Energy. “The Advantages of Solar Power.” n.d. from

    “Solar energy is a renewable form of energy and thus is sustainable energy. This means that the sun will come up pretty consistently forever, so you can rely on this power always being there. Sure there will be nights and cloudy days, but sooner or later, the sun will shine again and this “free form of renewable energy” will be back for us to use. Oil is not a renewable energy source, which means that once it’s used, it’s gone forever (it’s in limited supply).
    Solar power is produced during daytime (peak) periods of energy demand. This can be one of the biggest advantages of solar power because this is the same time period your power company charges you the most money to use energy” (ALternative Energy, Pa 1)
